Topless Reading Parties in NYC Aim to Make Reading Sexy

toplessreadingWe recently heard about silent reading parties hitting NYC, but the latest trend is much more risqué.  The Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society has returned with its annual topless reading initiative. The group hosts events around the city encouraging readers to strip down as they crack open a book.

Here is more about a recent outing:

Visiting one of our favorite haunts, the rooftop sundeck of a nude-friendly, gay-friendly, everything-friendly boutique hotel, we stripped down and gorged ourselves on Prosecco and Tropicana, fresh-baked croissants and brioches and madeleines, and reading material ranging from hardboiled crime yarns to ancient-astronaut tracts to the indescribably glorious ABRAHAM nLINCOLN, PRESIDENTIAL FUCK MACHINE. Conversation ensued. One of our number demonstrated an uncanny ability to imitate the call of a loon, surely a useful urban survival trait.
